Well, a time has come that I did not ever expect. The SilverMouse is loosing a tooth. And the funny thing is, there was nothing I could do about it. It seems that there was so much bone loss around the base of it that it was due to be gone anyway. There is also a wisdom tooth behind it that has been inverted and pushed up in the jaw with a cyst which has developed around it that has helped the bone loss process. I still brush, and keep eating healthy foods, but the one thing I could not control has finally caught up with me. And, that one thing is Genetics.

The good thing is that I have no guilt about it. All those years that mom told me to take care of those teeth is still paying off because I have the rest of them exactly like I should. The only cavity I have is in a wisdom tooth which is going to be pulled out anyway. That will probably happen next year.

So, in the mean time, I will let you all know what kind of lesson I have learned out of this whole ordeal when it comes to me. In the mean time, I will continue looking for any and all ways I can improve this personal temple of the Holy Spirit.
